1 To the Chief Musician. For stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song. God is known in Judah, His name is great in Israel. 2 And His abode is in Salem; and His dwelling-place in Zion. 3 There He broke the fiery arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
4 You are more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey. 5 The stouthearted have been stripped; they slept their sleep; and none of the men of might have found their hands. 6 By Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the horse and the chariot have sunk into a sleep.
7 You, even You, are terrifying, and who can stand when once You are angry? 8 You cause judgment to be heard from Heaven; the earth feared and was still, 9 when God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah. 10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise You; the wrath that is left, You shall bind up.
11 Vow, and pay to Jehovah your God; let all that are around Him bring presents to the Fearful One. 12 He shall cut off the spirit in princes; He is feared by the kings of the earth.
